      - FIRST EDITION OF PASTEUR'S REVOLUTIONARY ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DISCOVERY OF MOLECULAR ASSYMETRY. "Pasteur's discovery counts among the most important advances in chemistry and constitutes the foundation of stereochemistry" ("Citation for Chemical Breakthrough Awards: Choosing Pasteur's Award-Winning Publication" in Bull. Hist. Chem., 38, 2013). Pasteur's announcement appeared in this Comptes, but because he wrote two more detailed papers later, there has always been an academic argument as to which paper is of the greatest import and should serve as the official citation. In 2013, the American Chemical Society wanted to award the Citation for Chemical Breakthrough award, an award given to a particularly seminal work. After performing a full assessment of each paper, this reported in "Citation for Chemical Breakthrough Awards: Choosing Pasteur's Award-Winning Publication" in Bull. Hist. Chem., Vol. 38, 1, 2013, it was decided that the focused Comptes paper was the most important because it was the initial announcement of an entirely new and revolutionary observation with crucial implications for molecular structure."Soon after graduating from the École Normale Supérieure, Pasteur became puzzled by the discovery of the German chemistEilhardt Mitscherlich, who had shown that tartrates and paratartrates behaved differently towardpolarized light: tartrates rotated the plane of polarized light, whereas paratartrates did not. This was unusual because the compounds displayed identical chemical properties. "Pasteur noted that the tartrate crystals exhibited asymmetric forms that corresponded to their optical asymmetry. He made the surprising observation that crystalline paratartrate consisted of a mixture of crystals in a right-handed configuration. However, when these crystals were separated manually, he found that they exhibited right and left asymmetry. In other words, a balanced mixture of both right and left crystals was optically inactive. Thus, Pasteur discovered the existence of molecular asymmetry, the foundation of stereochemistry, as it was revealed by optical activity. "Over the course of the next 10 years, Pasteur further investigated the ability of organic substances to rotate the plane of polarized light. He also studied the relationship that existed betweencrystalstructure and molecular configuration. His studies convinced him that asymmetry was one of the fundamental characteristics of livingmatter" (Louis Pasteur Biography, Science Control). ALSO: FIRST EDITION of Becquerel's first report of the first photographs of solar spectra. Becquerel took the photos in 1842 and they were first reported here in this volume. Included is Becquerel's methodology in preparing silver plates so as to obtain an image of the solar spectrum. He had creatively allowed a ray to impinge on a plate of silver covered in subchloride of silver. The image was not fixed, and could only be viewed in darkness. A contemporary account catches the 'magic' of this work: Becquerel impressed "on a silver plate an image of the solar spectrum, or in other words, the oblong coloured band of the seven prismatic colours, produced by decomposing a ray of light. This brilliant image (a miniature, and so to speak, artificial rainbow) Becquerel imprinted in a durable manner on a silver plate previously exposed to the action of the chloride. This fact sufficiently proves that the photogenic reproduction of colours is at least within the bounds of possibility" (Eliz Cook's Journal, 3-4, 95). CONDITION & DETAILS: Complete volume. Ex-libris bearing only a deaccessioned stamp on the back of the title page and slight ghosting at the spine where a spine level has been removed. 4to (11 x 8 inches; 275 x 200mm). [6], 728, [2]. Bound in clean full blue cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Solidly and tightly bound. Small stain at the head of the last twenty pages, very occasional toning, otherwise clean and bright throughout.

        Balzaculator La Comédie Humaine as a Binary System for Balzacolytes

      Bologna, Italy:: Angela Lorenz,, 2013.. Edition of 12. 8.5 x 6"; 91 double-sided cards. Laid in canvas-covered boards with thread and weight closure. Canvas cover printed in gold. Color dots printed with HB pencil erasers on acid-free cardstock. Text in archival ink pen. Housed in a 10 x 6.5 x 2" plexi glass single drawer case. Signed and numbered by the artist . Angela Lorenz: "This is an analog, proto-computer to determine which characters created by Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850) appear in which stories or novels of The Human Comedy. In 1833, after Balzac had already started writing this collection of 90+ novels and stories, he realized the potential of weaving repeating characters throughout the works, to introduce familiarity into any scene and to eliminate the need to describe every figure anew. This also allowed Balzac the chance to develop individuals further, earlier or later in life, in any given moment of The Human Comedy. Of the thousands of characters, all appearing four or more times are here. "The loom apparatus pays homage to French weaver and merchant Jacquard, whose innovations around the time of Balzac's birth constituted the first computer program: a series of punched cards to indicate a pattern to be woven automatically on a loom. The viewer may place the punched card in front of any of the 179 repeating characters in the Balzaculator and colored dots will show the novels or stories in which a character appears. The Balzaculator Color Code on the reverse is a key to enrich each character by citing professions, status, and personal qualities. For the truly curious, there is also an index regarding the reason two characters share a single sheet. Some notable characters are missing here, appearing only in one story named after them. "The eight linen bookbinding threads allowing the cover to open and close echo the eight-character bit strings of binary code used to write the title on the cover, and the eight sections of La Comédie Humaine. The faux terracotta antique Roman loom weights dangling from the threads, together with the canvas cover printed in gold, summon up Balzac, the fervid collector of art and antiquities, writing through the night in his white cashmere monk's robe tied with a gold Venetian belt. Dots in Memento Archival Ink printed with HB pencil erasers on acid-free cardstock. Errata in archival ink pen based on Balzac's outlandish corrected proofs which he gave as presents to friends.

      Cambridge, Massachusetts:: Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz,, 2013.. Series of 8 variants. 11.5 x 8.5 x 2.25" box containing one burned paperback book preserved with PVA, enhanced with oil. Box hand-made by Mary McCarthy, lined with archival pigment prints scanned from snapshots taken by the artist in Wyoming, printed on Rag Photographique, 210 gsm, and covered in Brown Umber Asahi Book Cloth over Davey board. Text design for bookplate by Shawn Semmes. Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz: "Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here is an international effort by artists and poets in response to the tragic bombing on March 5, 2007 of what had for centuries been the intellectual and literary hub of Baghdad in the form of a long, winding street of booksellers. The attack killed over thirty people and injured over one hundred. Bearing witness to this tragedy, over three hundred artists from twenty-four countries have created book objects, letter press poetry on broadsides, and a book of poetry and prose entitled Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here. A complete set of works is traveling internationally; one edition will reside permanently in the National Library of Iraq in Baghdad. "Responding to an invitation to join the project, I ceased my work with shattered plaster and started burning books ?- ultimately altering eight books in five languages, reflecting the true contents of al-Mutanabbi Street bookstalls on the day they were bombed. Then I 'buried' each book in a coffin lined not with satin but with open sky, a suggestion of future and possibility. When partially closed, the boxes bring to mind the shape of a new book. Un-shrouded, the mute books become corpses requiring protection and commemoration. Unable to read them any longer, we honor them with labels marking the day of their demise." There are eight variants with five available as three are traveling with the Al-Mutanabbi Street exhibits.

        Haciendo presión

      Habana, Cuba / Florence, Massachusetts:: Cuba Marzo / Red Trillium Press,, 2013.. Edition of 30 + 3 AP. 12.5 x 9" closed. Eleven prints in all. Ten are displayed in two sets of 5 double-page spreads that independently extend in accordion fashion from the front and back covers, forming a rectangular corral structure with the prints on two opposing longs sides and the front and back covers closing the corral on the short sides. The eleventh print is on the inside of the back covers. Four-page information sheet laid in. Processes: silkscreen, linocut + watercolor, lithography, silkscreen + acrylic, woodcut, and relief etching. Janette Brossard Duharte, introduction: "Haciendo presión ("Putting Pressure") is an independent project conceived by a group of Cuban artists whose creative work has demonstrated for nearly fifteen years printmaking remains a powerful artistic medium within the island's contemporary art scene. The groups first action took place during the 11th edition of Havana's International Art Biennial with a collective show at the San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress. Their second action is this book that more fully defines their comprehensive vision by putting pressure on social issues. "'Haciendo presión' refers to those actions taken by individuals and groups marginalized or stigmatized by society either to survive or to liberate themselves from oppression. Whether advocating for gender values, ethnic and gay rights, or the right to a political choice, their goal is to exert pressure to advance their human rights. "Their new book's discourse focuses on this phenomenon while reaffirming the worth of Printmaking as a visual art language. Graphic production involves a great deal of physical pressure - the pressure to work under economic constraints, the pressure of the act of creation, the pressure of coping with an underrated medium. More than enough reason for the creation of this joint action! Haciendo presión is an expression that demands continuous action, permanent struggle and necessary challenge.

        Simon Brett: An Engraver's Process A Selection of Engravings with an Introduction by the artist

      Mission, British Columbia:: Barbarian Press,, 2013.. Edition of 175. 10.5 x 15.25"; 120 leaves including 7 fold outs. Of the edition, 55 constitute the Deluxe state, and the remaining 120 the Standard. Texts printed in Joanna with Fry?'s Ornamented for display in green and black on Zerkall Cream laid, with 134 engravings printed from the wood on Zerkall White Smooth. Standard version bound in quarter green cloth with a printed paper label and patterned paper over boards. Barbarian Press: "Books on wood engraving have become a particular specialty of the press since the publication in 1995 of Endgrain: Contemporary Wood Engraving in North America. ... The interest shown in Endgrain has spawned an ongoing series of books called Endgrain Editions, each volume showing selected work of a single engraver, printed from the original blocks, with an introduction and a catalogue of major works. ... Barbarian Press, Endgrain Editions 4: "Simon Brett is acknowledged as one of the masters of wood engraving of the past half-century. He was inspired to take up engraving in the early 1960s by his teacher Clifford Webb at St Martin?'s School of Art in London, where he was principally studying as a painter. He illustrated a number of books in the 1980s and published them under his own imprint, Paulinus Press, winning the Francis Williams Illustration Award for the first, The Animals of Saint Gregory, in 1981. Since 1989, when he retired from teaching at Marlborough College, he has worked exclusively as a wood engraver, principally as a book illustrator. "Although his work has appeared in books from such publishers as David R. Godine [Pushkin?'s The Gypsies and other poems] and in 26 images for the New Testament portion of The Reader?'s Digest Illustrated Bible, the widest selection is to be seen in books from the Folio Society, for which he has illustrated many classics, .... Beyond this, his engravings have been commissioned by many fine presses in Great Britain, the United States, and Canada ?- including ours. "We spent several days with Simon in November 2011 going through the archive of his work in his studio in Marlborough, and with him we made a preliminary selection of images going back to his earliest engravings. In celebration of Simon Brett?'s first fifty years as an engraver and his 70th birthday, we completed a few copies of this retrospective book on his work in time for the Oxford Book Fair in November 2013. ... "An Engraver?'s Progress [Endgrain Editions 4] is more extensive than other volumes in the Endgrain Edition series, containing 134 engravings, considerably more than twice the number shown in the earlier volumes. There are several tipped double spreads of larger images, and the book is in the larger format ...used for Endgrain Editions 3: Peter Lazarov. Simon Brett has written a fascinating autobiographic introduction to his work, there is a Publisher?'s Foreword, and like the other volumes in the series, the book includes a catalogue raisonné of major exhibitions, a checklist of books illustrated by the artist, and a list of his publications as author and editor. It also includes a complete chronological listing of all Simon?'s engravings from 1961 to the present. The two last engravings on the list are the pattern block for the cover paper of this book, and its frontispiece, both specially commissioned. We believe Endgrain Editions 4: Simon Brett ?- an Engraver?'s Progress will become the primary reference for the first fifty years of Simon?'s work.

        Bug Book

      Punctum Press, 2013. Hardcover. Fine. Hardcover. A small open edition with each copy being a little different as each includes a different selection of insects and photographs. This is the fourth one that Kristin has created and she plans on making one or two more. Kristin is a book artist, furniture maker, and teacher from Iceland. Her work typically address feelings, memory, and experience. After moving to America she became fascinated with insects; she says: "there are so many insects/bugs in this country that I have never seen. If they come my way I am happy to study them through my camera lens. I take the photographs using extension tubes. The tubes act similar to a macro lens, and allow the explorer to get extremely close to the desired object. Coming from a little island in the middle of north Atlantic, although there are an infinite number of bugs there, they are not the same. For instance I am only aware of one kind of bee in Iceland, where as over here there are so many." Black cloth clamshell box with seven specimen boxes housing insects. Each box lifts up to reveal a miniature accordion book, which documents the specimen through photographs. Insects include: housefly, Boxelder bug, cicada, beetle, bee, and more. The box is held closed with a wrap around photographic band with velcro closures. The photographs are extreme close-ups, which abstract and excentuate the form and colors of each insect. In this context the insects are transformed into pieces of art. The cloth covering the box has a very slight dampstain, else in fine condition. A well-crafted, innovative book.

        Partridge Sky

      Beijing, China:: Leilei Guo,, 2013.. Edition of 5. 39.3 × 26.6× 4.6 cm closed (15.5 x 10.5 x 1.8"); 320 × 195 cm extended (125 x 76.8"), 56 folds (double-sided panels). Silkscreen prints. Laid in four-flap hardcover portfolio wrapper with tie closure. Landscape drawing on cover flap by the artist using pastels. Poem handwritten by the artist in Chinese and English on interior flaps of portfolio. Translation to English by the artist. This massive (when laid out) work is another in Leilei Guo's continuing examination of the interaction of East and West. Leilei Guo: "This work has two different but related pictorial sides. One side has a calligraphy version of Zhe Gu Tian Xi Du Zuo, a poem written by Dunru Zhu during the Song Dynasty. The calligraphy appears to float on a scene of today's city traffic. The other side of this picture shows the cityscape of Manhattan, as seen from Long Island. Floating across the images of Manhattan is the calligraphic poem. Two different cultures, two different times, two different modes of expression ?- different but related. "The poem side represents the city as place of potential solitude, just like the poet described in the poem, a site to pursue a peaceful and natural place inside the heart, undisturbed by the surrounding bustle of city life. This is the life style preferred by all the ancient Chinese literati. This world is symbolized the three different color blocks covering the calligraphy. The color scheme comes from the artistic conception of the poem, formed by the different tones of Chinese characters. A white block is for the first and second tones, a black block is for the third and fourth tones, and a grey block is the flexible pronunciation that may change in sentences. "The other side shows a view of Manhattan, one of the most modern cities in the world, a city in the dreams of many people in developing countries. People modernize their countries, develop the economy, and copy the super cities, not only the buildings but also the life style." Zhe Gu Tian Xi Du Zuo (translation from the Chinese original by the artist): "I?'m in charge of mountains and water in the heaven, where God made me profligate and unrestrained. For many times I gave orders to allocate wind and rain, and presented memorials to God for keeping the colorful clouds, and lending the moon to people. I live a free life, reciting 10,000 poems is never too many, and drinking 1,000 cups of alcohol will never make me drunk. In my eyes, kings and ministers are worthless. I do not even care about being appointed a senior position in heaven. I prefer to place a stick of plum flower and get drunk in the city of Luoyang, the flower capital.

It measures 18 x 16 cm. and is in a hand-painted paper folder with Apsaras of Angkor. "Scrolls are paper-lined silk and handmade abaca and cotton paper with painted images edged with gold. They are 44 cm. wide, 48 cm. with the dowel rods, and unroll to 93 cm. long. They close with cloth ties with beads on the ends. Charles Donelan, "Angkor Box", Santa Barbara Independent: "Silent Faces/Angkor box, [is] a kind of extended artist's book that's written, printed, and painted across a variety of media, including a traditionally printed fine book, an accordion fold print, and a series of Chinese-style painted scrolls, all of which are carefully nested into a custom carrying case/display box. "The project began when Heebner visited Angkor Wat, the sacred site in Cambodia, and began a series of drawings of the stone faces carved on the temple walls there. The drawings were only one aspect of Heebner's research and absorption in the stories of Angkor. She's also a writer and an extraordinarily knowledgeable global traveler with decades of experience, able to shift easily through the lenses of art, mythology, anthropology, and history to arrive at a complex composite vision of a culture. In this instance, her focus is on the myth of the naga and the apsara, an ancient Cambodian creation myth in which the sea serpent naga churns the ocean until the beautiful dancing goddesses known as apsaras burst into existence from out of the sea's foam. ... In addition to the triply transformed and ravishing images of the stone faces that now adorn the project's four scrolls, Heebner completed a series of crisp, Matissean sketches of the dancing apsara that run throughout the package as a motif, printed on thick, lush paper in one iteration and watermarked into more delicate sheets elsewhere in the box. … "Environmental historians have a concept called the 'portmanteau biota,' which refers to the idea that European colonists would try to transplant entire ecosystems onto the landscapes that they encountered. For Heebner, these artistic 'portmanteaux,' or carrying cases, contain not the living organisms necessary to re-create some certain environment but rather a carefully chosen set of images, ideas, and aspirations that point the way toward a better relation with the environment we already have.

        Scales: A Collection of Tuna Haikus Written by Joe Salembier / Illustrated by Tevin King

      Scottsdale, Arizona:: Joe Salembier,, 2013.. Edition of 10. 10.5 x 12" cloth-covered clamshell box with 14 leaves laid in. Images printed on archival photo paper. Text printed on Stonehenge fine-art paper with Eva Antigua typeface. Letterpress printed by Cindy Iverson at Letterpress Central, Chandler, Arizona. Signed and numbered by artist and poet. Joe Salembier: "I wrote the tuna fish haikus in 2001 after a long illness. Colon resection surgery left me weak and unable to eat, except strangely, for tuna fish. Tuna just tasted good - casserole, salads, steaks -- I couldn't get enough of it. At the time, my sister-in-law was teaching a course about the power of writing to a group of felons in a Missouri prison. She encouraged me to document my experiences using the Japanese Haiku format. It worked! She liked the poems and actually shared them with her students. Eventually I recovered and stored the Haikus in a folder on my computer where they sat unnoticed for over 10 years. "When I rediscovered the Haiku folder, the poems literally begged me to get out. It was then that I decided to try to pair them with illustrations. .. "My approach to Haiku writing was both to follow closely the Japanese 5-7-5 syllable structure and to honor the Haiku's original definition, 'a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself; a way of looking a the world and seeing something deeper.' When Tevin read the poems, he decided to base his work on the 17th-century Ukiyo-e Japanese woodblock style. "Stylistically, I wrote in English and applied my own American sensibility to the Haiku poems. Tevin's work adopted a similar strategy. Scales shows how this ancient art form can evolve into contemporary communication, with a strictly American take on it. We think our work respects history while conveying its own emotion and humor. ... "Each portfolio is a marriage of inkjet and letterpress printing. The poems are hand letterpress printed on fine art paper. Because the artwork was created digitally and is color-rich, we decided to use inkjet printers. The illustrations were given a de-bossed 'frame' to give them a sense of place on the page." Tevin King is a video game artist, animator, and digital illustrator.

        In the Minute Before/ In the Minute After

      High Falls, New York:: Maureen Cummins,, 2013.. Edition of 25. 7 x 10.75"; 18 pages. Dos-à-dos structure. Printed on Arches cover with over two hundred runs of letterpress printing, silkscreen, stenciling, and hand-coloring. Covers were handpainted, screenprinted, and stamped with the numbers 11:39 and 11:41 the times (respectively) before and after the bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street. Both sections of the book can be tucked into an end-flap for ease of reading, or untucked and fully expanded for exhibition purposes. Maureen Cummins: "In the Minute Before / In the Minute After is the result of a year-and-a-half long collaboration between Maureen Cummins and Tona Wilson. This book was created as part of the Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition, an international response by over two hundred artists to the bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street (also known as the Street of Booksellers) which occurred in Baghdad, Iraq, on March 7, 2007. "The book is an impassioned paean to the flowering of book culture, as well as a mournful enumeration of deliberate acts of censorship, repression and destruction. The contrast and continuum of these two realities is represented within a dos-à-dos structure, which allows the reader to flip from one narrative to the next, from a bright, jewel-colored world to a dark, fragmented one, neither of which is clearly the beginning or the end of the story. "In the Minutes Before depicts the world of knowledge and beauty. Grand epochs are contained within sweeping, horizontal spreads. The multiple layers of text and imagery within these pages reference great books, writers, and critical moments in history, a sampling of which include: 'The Dawn of the First Libraries'; 'the Egyptian Book of the Dead'; 'the Dead Sea Scrolls'; 'Hypatia of Alexandria'; 'Abelard and Heloise, Lovers and Scholars'; 'the Diamond Sutra'; 'William Blake, Poet, Painter and Book Artist'; 'the Birth of Dada'; 'the Beats'; 'Artist Books'; 'Spoken Word.' "In the Minute After depicts a world of chaos and annihilation, the only light that of books being burned. Figures from the previous spreads appear broken, dismembered, and hurling across a space so dark that even words become difficult to read: 'Mongols invade, the Tigris runs red with book, black with ink'; 'Hypatia tortured to death'; 'Abelard castrated, Heloise sent to convent, their writings banned in the US as late as 1930'; 'Argentina, 1970's, writers, publishers, editors, even proofreaders 'disappeared'; 'An eyeglass mark on the bridge of the nose merited a death sentence from the Khmer Rouge.' In the final pages of this section the text transitions into light. "Cummins and Wilson worked closely together to create this edition. While Cummins worked on 'The Minute Before' and Wilson worked on 'The Minute After,' there was a continual discussion, overlapping of ideas, and shared decision-making throughout - a true artistic collaboration. World events also influenced the artists' choices and direction: When reports emerged about threats to precious manuscripts in Timbuktu, that crisis was included ... Similarly, the controversy surrounding restructuring and renovations plans at the New York Public library led to the playful inclusion of Patience and Fortitude, a pair of stone lions that guard that library's 42nd Street branch. ...
